[webkit-dev] Why WAP?

Why do we have patches for WAP support?
WAP is big in asian markets, yes?
Can someone provide some data as to how big?  Is the market for WAP growing?
 It seems that the various posted -wap- patches have limited utility for the
rest of WebKit.  It seems to me (although I am the first to admit ignorance
here!) that WAP is a dying technology and I don't see why we would want to
add the complexity to WebKit.

I worry the proposed WAP support patches violate some of our non-goals.
WebKit is an engineering project not a science project.*WebKit is not the
solution to every problem.
